When you are into bodybuilding seriously you tend to take the finer details of working out as more important for getting the desired physique. However, there is a recent debate raging around the internet with proponents of clean bulk and dirty bulk are both giving various reasons why their choice is better than the other. However, let us not forget that when it comes to bodybuilding, we should have a specific shape of physique in the healthy weight range for you, as the end-result of all the endless hours you sweat it out in the gym.
To understand what clean bulking and dirty bulking is all about understand that your body needs a specific number of calories (varies according to individual) called peak calorie intake, which is normally required for the energy to perform everyday tasks efficiently. Apart from this, there is a range of excess calorie intake that a person can safely increase their daily calorie intake levels to gain bulk, and eventually more muscles.
Clean Bulking – The excess calorie intake, over the peak calorie intake and within the safe limits, is highly restricted and regularly monitored. This technique ideally helps to gain gradual and steady weight in muscles while minimizing the risk of unnecessary fat intake in the body.
Dirty Bulking – The excess calorie intake in this is not as restricted comparatively. The main goal is to have a more flexible range of daily extra calorie intake. This will ideally help to build muscles at a faster pace but the risk of fat accumulation is also increased.
Plus, with the winter coming this seems to be the perfect time to plan your bulking schedule as well. We will look at the finer points of both types of bodybuilding bulking techniques and let you be the judge of which is best for your particular desired physique.
In clean bulking the person will have a very closely monitored daily diet. It will include finer details about the type of food as well as the safe volume of excess calorie that the person can intake without putting on unnecessary weight in the form of fat.
The diet in clean bulking tends to be more specific and basically nutrition-rich in nature, while the diet in bulking tends to focus on weight (muscle) building with almost any form of diet.
Clean bulking ensures that the body gets the healthier and most nutritious food in the diet while the dirty bulking method may not specify clearly the line between healthy and unhealthy diets.
The most important thing to remember in bodybuilding is to know the way your body works to make muscles. Every individual has varying limits of ability to make a certain volume of muscles, by combining the calories gained from diet and the calories burned (by working out) into creating more muscular mass.
With a clean bulking approach the excess calorie intake allows for a gradual processing of the calories gained into pure muscles, at the natural rate.
With dirty bulking technique, the extra calorie intake over the safe limit results in these calories being turned into fat on various parts of the body.
Let us hope you now have a better understanding about the importance of the quality and volume of diet if you wish to put on muscular mass this winter.
